TWO fan-favorite Real Housewives of Orange County alums are “in talks” to rejoin the show.
Meanwhile, a villain has been reportedly SNUBBED in the cast shakeup.
However, Vicki Gunvalson, 60, has reportedly not been asked back.
A source told the outlet that the cast for next year’s season is being finalized in the coming days.
Tamra was fired from the Bravo show in 2020 after 12 years as a Housewife.
The Sun exclusively reported that the executives had attempted to demote her role because her salary was too high for her storyline.
Although she’s no longer on the screens of OC viewers, Tamra caused a stir on the latest season of the spinoff show Ultimate Girls Trip.
During a ‘naked party’, she flashed the camera while her despairing co-star Eva Marcille asked: “How does liquor make people act like this?”

RHOC OG Vicki also joined Tamra on the ex-Housewives trip, but has reportedly not been asked back to the Orange County lineup.
BACK WITH BELLINO
Alexis on the other hand had a shorter tenure on the show, she joined as a main cast member for season five before being fired after season eight.
She made a guest appearance in season 14 and has reportedly been approached about rejoining but hasn’t signed a contract.
The former stay-at-home mom-of-five divorced her husband Jim Bellino in 2018, after viewers saw their marriage suffer its ups and downs.
In 2020, Alexis got engaged to Andy Bohn after they appeared on Bravo’s Below Deck together.
In May, fans of the franchise heard rumors that Gina Kirstchneiter, 37, could be demoted from a main cast member to a ‘friend’.
However, Gina herself dismissed the chatter among Bravo-fanatics as “rumors, rumors.”
Last month, she was dragged into her boyfriend Travis Mullen’s nasty custody battle.
Gina was accused of pushing him down the stairs infront of the three children that he shares with his ex Meghan Mullen.
Travis and Meghan have since come to a custody agreement.

Fans can expect that season 17 will see Heather Dubrow, 53, continue as a main cast member, along with Shannon Beador, 57, although RadarOnline.com claims that newbie Noella Bergener, 36, may have already been demoted.
